The things that I’ve overcome, completed, and finished have been more about dealing with frustration than goal driven.
These things arise and become part of my life for a bit. I become familiar with it and learn to understand it. At a certain point I feel compelled to finally take care of it. I take care of it because I’ve become frustrated with it. But when I do get to that point, its usually with thought and the experience I’ve had with the frustration. My dealing with it isn’t just random, it includes thought. I usually won’t do most things with out a bit of research. I try my best to always get the results in my favor.
The best example of this was being kicked out of school in my college days. I got kicked out because of my attitude. I did make it back and graduated. But wow did I take the long road to do that. But what got me through it was my frustration that I just wanted to finish this and be done with it. Never did I have in my mind that it was prestigious or exemplary to graduate from college. Simply to me it was a need that needed to be taken care of. I had enough thought and being angry with myself that the only way to stop being like that was to get back to school and graduate. That was all I thought about and eventually helped me through it.
